For Review:

Girl Meets Boy: Because There Are Two Sides To Every Story edited by Kelly Milner Halls (Vine) — I’ve already started reading this, it’s not bad so far.

The Wicked And The Just by J. Anderson Coats (Vine) – You guys I am so excited for this book! It is YA historical fiction set in Medieval Wales. FUCKYEAHWALES. Yo. Also a 2012 Debut!

Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama (Netgalley) – This book has garnered amazing reviews SO FAR and okay I can check out a mermaid book for those kind of reviews.

Of Poseidon by Anna Banks (Netgalley) – Might as well roll with these ocean/mermaid type books.

Comments

  1. I really loved The Wicked & the Just! It is definitely all about the historical aspects. Super good.

  2. The cover for The Wicked and the Just is so freaking fantastic. I like me a good historical fiction.

  3. I got The Wicked and the Just at NCTE back in November but I haven’t read it yet. Need to get on that. 🙂

  4. I just read The Wicked and the Just – its great, especially all the history weaved into it.

  5. I have The Wicked and the Just but havent read it yet – I should soon, since I love books set in the Medieval era.

  6. I REALLY want to read Monstrous Beauty — but didn’t get a response on NetGalley. You’ll have to tell me if it’s good!

  7. THE WICKED AND THE JUST! YEAH BOY.

    I’d apologize for the all caps, but the truth is I’m not even sorry. Not a bit.

    MWAH.

  8. I’ve heard good things about Of Poseidon and can’t wait to read it!

  9. The Wicked and the Just sounds really good and I love the cover. I’ve heard great things about both mermaid books as well. Looking forward to checking them out.

  10. Can’t deny I am BEYOND intrigued over The Wicked and the Just – FUCKYEAHWALES!! Isn’t James McAvoy from Wales? I love James McAvoy….

    Glad to hear Boy Meets Girl isn’t bad. I have a copy but haven’t had a chance to read it yet. Can’t wait to hear the final verdict!
